Does perl have any DBI module that can be used everywhere, or is a tied file (tie()) a solution for me?Perl has a horde of [url=http://search.cpan.org/search?mode=module&query=dbd]DBD modules, but they all rely on you having a defined data structure (eg CSV, SQL, LDAP, etc.)
DBM may serve as well, but its implementation varies... just make sure that the source and destination servers offer the same implemenation.
What's the problem with that?According to Tim Bunce (co-author of Programming the Perl DBI) "[url=http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg00065.html]Perl 5.004_04 is quite buggy relative to, say, 5.005_03 or later...The DBI officially doesn't support Perl 5.004 any more."
